This type of yoga uses a sequence of 26 different yoga poses designed to scientifically warm and stretch muscles, ligaments, and tendons.  The yoga is practiced in a heated room in order to warm the muscles, prevent injury and to cleanse the body by flushing out toxins through sweating. This type of yoga is suitable for all ages and levels of ability. Bikram Yoga Richmond Hill is less than a 15-minute transit ride from Timbercreek’s 278 Cedar Avenue community in Richmond Hill.

Centennial Pool

Using a swimming pool for exercise is a fantastic way to get in a full body workout that is low-impact and refreshing. The Centennial Pool & Fitness Studio is only a seven-minute bicycle ride from Timbercreek’s Richmond Hill community and features a 25-meter swimming pool complete with six lanes for lap swimming. The pool also offers recreational swimming, lane designated swim times, leisure swims and seniors-only swims.  The facility offers accessible change rooms for both individuals and families. Working out in the water burns calories and forces you to fully engage your muscles due to the water’s continuous resistance (all while being low impact). This makes it a great workout for people of all ages, whether you are looking to burn fat, build muscle or increase flexibility.
